"Weight Of Glory" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
A ring of Pharisees and one of them was me
We loved the letter but not the spirit
An infidelity, a woman on her knees
She begged for mercy, we couldn?t hear it

The teacher looked from us, his finger in the dust
We felt the chill and it shook us to our bones
Then he raised his head and this is what he said,
?The one who has not sin should throw a stone?

[Chorus:]
I walked away in silence
and threw myself upon the ground
These words they burned inside me
Take up your cross before your crown

Go and judge not, lest ye be judged with the girl and come down

[Chorus]

Take up your cross before your crown
Judge not, lest ye be judged with the girl and come down

Take up your cross before your crown
Your cross before your crown

    General CommentNo song on Vheissu gave me chills, this B-side gave them to me the entire song. Yes Fixx is correct, this song was based on John 8: 1-11. Read it, maybe you'll learn something kiddies.

    General Commentthis song is so sweet...it makes you reflect on your own sins and help understand the forgiveness that God has for each and everyone of us. and if someone tries to pull this isnt a christian song they are severly disturbed, mistaken, and/or retarded...

    General Commentinteresting, theres no posts from people trying to deny that thrice isnt a christian band...i wonder why? probably because 1) its from the book weight of glory 2) it derives directly from scripture, any other interpretation of this song would fall through the floor

    General CommentI wasn't going to say anything, but you just had to open it up in this thread. This song is obviously Christian-related and influence.. but that my no stretch makes the band a Christian band. Thrice have even gone on record saying they don't call themselves a Christian band. Jesus.. you people are so closed-minded sometimes.

    Yes, because everyone knows Christians are the only ones who aren't judgemental.

    Uh, right.

    General CommentGranted, there are allusions to the cross and sins, but there are also allusions to a crown and dust. So no, the song is not about Christianity, it's about royalty and housecleaning.
